They say cooking is an art, and what better way to feel inspired when whipping up feasts than by having a beautiful and ergonomic kitchen? If you’re obsessed with how your cooking area looks and functions, a makeover may just be what it needs. Not only will a quick revamp up your home’s style, it can also give you an opportunity to invest in the right must-haves for the kitchen of your dreams.
Can’t seem to settle on a particular style? A modern rustic theme may tickle your fancy as it seamlessly combines the warmth of natural materials and the practicality of contemporary pieces. Here’s how you can ace this look with a few handpicked products:
Showcase the beauty of natural wood on your walls and floors, and even as an extra prep area. A peninsula layout for your kitchen allows you to extend the counter and use it as a dining nook. Make it extra inviting by having crates and stools with wooden seats as part of your décor.
This Antiquated Pinewood Peninsula highlights a lovely and sturdy wooden piece that can function as an extension of the work area and as a breakfast bar.
Bricks are commonly seen in rustic kitchens. Aside from using these as part of an accent wall, they can also serve as a backsplash to complement the wooden pieces in the space. Update this combination by bringing in dark wood and stainless steel or metallic finishes. Install chic droplights to polish up this look.
Created by Italian architect and designer Piero Lissoni, the Aprile kitchen emphasizes the significance of using natural materials. Its countertop incorporates the washbasin in one piece, creating a space that’s sleek and functional.
Don’t limit yourself to the use of bricks. Cement walls can be the best backdrop for your topnotch appliances, wooden pieces, and elegant fixtures. Since these walls are bare, your chosen décor and materials will stand out. If you have enough space for shelves, consider having a floor-to-ceiling or wall-mounted storage piece.
Let your shelves do the talking. The Brompton by Piero Lissoni features aluminum uprights and matte melamine shelves that will fit effortlessly in a modern rustic kitchen. The best part? It will give your kitchen an industrial punch as well.
A kitchen island comes as an extra design element that can make tasks easier to accomplish. Aside from giving you more space for preparation, it can also double as storage for dinnerware, utensils, and other essentials.
If space poses a concern, the Minikitchen Outdoor by Joe Colombo and CRS Boffi is an island and trolley in one. Compact and easy to transport, it can help you get cooking done in a breeze with its electric hob, storage compartments, sockets for small appliances, and a spot for a mini refrigerator, too.
Beyond the wood, bricks, and exposed beams you can incorporate into your kitchen’s look, the countertop can tie everything together for a space that’s elegant and envy-worthy. Marble countertops can instantly add sophistication to your space and when paired with wood, they create an ambience that is casual and laid-back.
An iconic modular kitchen system, the Xila is a masterpiece of Italian architect and designer Luigi Massoni. The first kitchen available without handles, it can give your space a sleek and streamlined look through lightweight drawers and doors that conceal the appliances.
